"How sweet it is"
no problems with the setup. Antispam looks nice and the firewall. Like a said, there are a few settings advice might be needed. But if this is raw, well, it looks well done to me.
An announcement by ESET will be forthcoming shortly.
Remember this is a BETA, it may well trash your system, test it ONLY if you are prepared for this outcome.
Trash mine, I like it, but do understand. BS, this is really nice and worth the risk, at least to me.
Woooo! Going on the Virtual Machine as we speak!!
Folks, listen to Blackspears. I had to back mine out. It locked up on a scan. DO NOT DOWNLOAD UNTIL ESET SAYS SO. Sorry, but he is right. Thats ok, I can wait patiently after what I just saw. It was, damn, great.
So far I like it. ESET shouldn't be so coy...I'm in interactive mode for the F/W and now that I've trained it in the basic connections, it's working well. No blocking, no unnecessary popups so far. Hmmm...and I have a 'Help' system!!
The Firewall was the first thing I had a play with. Everything looks pretty good so far!
Pah! Just ran a background in depth scan with no probs whatsoever. Dual Core Athlon 4400+ CPU with 2 Gb DDRRAM means I'm doing other stuff at the same time with no slow down. I've also done one 'warm' reboot and a cold start. If this trashes my system I'll recover from my disc image, but I don't believe it's going to trash anything based on the last half hour's experience.
What is the resource usage like?
OK, What came first the Chicken or the Egg? LOL All in good fun!
So far so good,
1) It did not install on xp 64bit version.
2)NO right click scan available.
3) The firewall fails the GRC leak test.
4) The firewall is somewhat similar to kerio.
For some reasons, the eye logo in the splash screen reminds me of windows media player logo and
even the Update logo is similar to idisk logo of apple.
30 to 35 MB's and I'm doing a full scan!
My one firewall issue is Cisco VPN does not want to connect. Tried somethings - it works if I turn off filtering - when I connect it puts the IP into the trusted network. Even went thru steps to get Outpost to work with Cosco's VPN. So far, only when I put on automatic will it work.
Oh well - something will fix it.
yes, as Triple helix said above the ram usage is in the range of 28mb to 36 mb
Wrong. It does not fail the leak test. I just ran the test and asked ESS to deny access, which it did. The leak test app confirmed success. Suggest you check what you have allowed ESS to pass and try again.
No, there doesn't seem to be a 'Context Menu' profile as yet. Whilst this is disappointing I trust ESET will add this soon.
Here's a bunch of screenshots for anyone not comfortable with trying out a beta

It did not pass the test when the firewall was set to automatic but it passed , when I put firewall to interactive filtering.
Nice screenshots BRIAN N .
Remember this is first beta with not full set of features of the final version.
This is a little off topic, but down the line, will there be a standalone 3.0 antivirus released? Thanks.
That's understood...np here...
Actually that's a good question. As I have a hardware firewall I'd rather have a trimmed down version without the F/W as Kaspersky do.
The only thing that doesnt seem to work for me is the e-mail tag in outlook!
Also in advance setting under user interface:
When i set "Use animated icons ......" and "use sound signal" then this is not remembered!
well, I did a reinstall and left everything as is, until BS says differently. Good so far.
